Nice rim walk  Sucess!

Came here once before and it was socked in. Today, the sky was clear and it was pretty breezy at the top. Hiked the paved rim trail and got pretty nice views in all directions. Well worth the hike. The $15 vehicle entry fee seemed a bit steep though for such a small park.

Interesting Formation  Sucess!

Did this alongside: Baby Capulin, Twin Peaks. Walked the rim. Cool day. Would definitely go back.

Finally!  Sucess!

After three other stops here, twice very late in the evening and once in heavy snow, I finally made it here while the gate was open. Great trail up top, and another one into the cone. Lovely.

The rim hike  Sucess!

A quick stop on our cross country drive. I made a point of adding this to our itinerary once I discovered it was a national monument.

Crater Rim  Sucess!

I first wished to hike from base to summit, but instead of doing a road walk, I lazily drove up the volcano and walked the crater rim. Great landscape here.

Pleasant hike in November  Sucess!

Nice hike around the rim in November - warm but not summer hot. Be sure to go down into the caldera too.

I hiked this one with crutches and an ankle compression boot while my wife waited in the car in the upper parking lot.

Nice  Sucess!

Stopped by on my way to Amarillo. Walked the Crater Rim Trail and the Crater Vent Trail. Beautiful views, and nice to learn about the geology of the area.

Second time was the charm  Sucess!

Beautiful day to visit the volcano. I hiked one of the lava flow trails down below then drove up to the rim and hiked the rim trail and crater trail. Love the views of the old lava flows from up top.

Wonderful Place  Sucess!

I've been here twice and loved it both times. It is very unique and beautiful. The views from the trail are wonderful. Would love to go again!

Fun Trip With My Kids  Sucess!

Took the road to the rim trail. Hiked as much as we were allowed to there. My daughter, age 7 at the time, asked "Daddy, will the volcano interrupt?"

Fun with my kids!   Sucess!

We needed a break on a long road trip. My three year old girl hiked the paved rim trail with me while my one year old boy caught a ride in the backpack. I took some nice photos along the way, then lost my camera in the parking lot. We returned about a week later to pick up the camera on the way back west from Missouri.
